Conquer by M.S. Willis - Blog Tour & Giveaway


Conquer (Control #3)

***Content Warning - This is a new adult fiction with mature themes. It contains graphic sexual situations, mature language and explicit description of sexual violence.***

Conquer is the third book in the Control series. This description contains spoilers for those who have not read books one and two in the series, entitled Control and Conflict.

Private Investigator, Paige Stone’s world was shattered when she learned truths about her past. Following her discovery, Paige is forced into a situation where she needs to accept that, although a person can control their mind and body, the circumstances of their lives are far outside their grasp. As Paige struggles with coming to terms about events in her life, she is also put through the harrowing task of learning when to fight and when to let go.

Strong-willed and arrogant, Daemon Pierce agrees to help Paige on her hunt for Chris. As Daemon instructs her how to fight with both body and mind, he breaks down the final walls she has built around her heart.

Paige and Daemon’s emotional journey concludes as they learn the meaning of love and forgiveness, and ultimately...surrender.

Fiddling with my fingers, I attempted to avoid looking at him while he processed the information I’d provided.  When he finally spoke again, I jumped slightly.  “It pisses me off knowing Chris has been following you this whole time.  I don’t fucking understand how he got your tag number.  I followed you out that night to make sure you stayed safe!”   His hand hit the steering wheel with a loud thump. Taking a breath to calm himself, he sagged back in his seat.  “Regardless, you may be right about his reason for fixating on you.  So, you need to keep that in mind at all times.  No more fucking stunts on your own, okay?”
“I know, Daemon.  I already promised that to you.”
Nodding his head, he turned the truck sharply into his garage.  After pulling into a space, he turned the vehicle off, but didn’t move to open his door.
His eyes remained trained straight ahead as he said, “Damsel, if Chris were to ever get ahold of you again, he’s not going to play around with you anymore.  You’ve escaped him twice, humiliated him four times, if you count those escapes.   It’s unlikely he’d wait long before killing you.”
His head suddenly swung to look in my direction.  The desperate plea in his eyes caused my breath to hiccup.  “Paige, I can’t lose you, not like that.  If I ever have to let you go, I want it to be when we are old and silver.  I want a life behind us, memories behind us; possibly kids…who knows?  All I know is that I would lose my mind if I lost you before then.”
My heart skipped, as my throat closed.  Tears threatened my eyes and my nose became stuffy.  I never understood why a heavy emotional reaction felt like an illness, but the symptoms were definitely the same.  
Having no words in response to his, I lunged over.   My hands buried themselves into his hair as my mouth took possession of his.  My body prickled at the feel of his warm mouth upon mine and I greedily sought more of him with my tongue.  My chest heaved with intense desire, a churning sea of hormones and…love.  Needing to be closer, I climbed over to straddle him.   I pulled away from our kiss to look deep in to his sparkling blue eyes.  When our gaze locked, heat bloomed throughout my body.  My hands found the hem of my shirt and I pulled up on the material, freeing it before tossing it to the floor.  Daemon’s hands instantly found my breasts, squeezing to the point of pain.   Lightning shot through me from where he touched causing me to arch further into his hold.  A moan escaped my lips as his mouth found my neck.   This man did things to my body that I never knew were possible.  He made me feel dirty, but in a way that was only meant for him.  I lost all inhibition around him, not caring about what I was saying or doing, as long as it pleased him.  When he touched me it felt like my body melted to his, becoming one.   His scent and the feel of his hard body against mine was all that was needed to completely sedate my mind, while at the same time awakening every naughty part on my body.





My Review:

★★★★★

Ms. Willis does not disappoint in this 3rd and final installment of the Control series, as the hunt for Chris, the psychopath, continues. Everything I loved about the first 2 books (humor, intrigue, drama, extreme sexiness, etc.) was present here as well, which I greatly appreciate. I've come to realize that Ms. Willis is consistent in her writing style, meaning you know you can always expect something great and to be taken on one hell of a ride. The characters are well developed, her writing is flawless and captivating and the plot is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat in anticipation of what's to come. I love that each book in the series has picked up right where its predecessor left off without the need to recap each and every detail. So kudos to the author for getting us right into the heart of the story.

Paige is probably one of my favorite fictional heroines. She's tough, independent and street smart. While it pains her to do so, she can admit defeat, but not without giving it her all and putting up one hell of a fight. Daemon is just plain amazing. I swoon every time I hear his time. Hearing parts of the story from his perspective really helped fill in the gaps (what you don't know from Paige) and it draws you to him even more. And the added bonus of finding out about Chris' past is an interesting twist to the story and kind of makes you feel sorry for him, but then you remember he's a psycho and doesn't deserve sympathy so you get over that feeling rather quickly. I will never get enough of David! He has some pretty hilarious moments and I'm so glad he was a main part of this book.

I highly recommend this series and anything else by Ms. Willis. If she writes it, I will buy it!
